Tablescape at Ponte Winery-Rustic Vineyard Elegance
April 4, 2010

I had the pleasure of working on four tablescapes with the talented Kelly Manson of The Olive Rose. I’m a huge fan of Kelly’s floral designs, so this was an exciting collaboration. Below is one of four tablescapes we worked on at breathtaking Ponte Winery in Temecula. We call this tablescape, Rustic Vineyard Elegance.

Thank you to the talented Jessica and Robert of Jessica Elizabeth Photography for taking these magnificent photos!

The underlay consists of a silver charmeuse satin linen. To convey that rustic feeling, we placed a chocolate charmeuse satin linen on top and left it blowing in the wind…..a bit crooked too. Yes, we did that on purpose to achieve just the right look! To compliment, silver cushions were placed on fruitwood chiavari chairs. A very special thank you to Fusion for the beautiful linens.

Notice how Kelly used a mixture of Leonida, Black Bacara and Black Velvet Roses to make the table pop with color against the chocolate linen. I borrowed that embroidered lamp from my parents’ home. I saw it and couldn’t resist. I think it fits in just perfectly!

The napkins are a chocolate pintuck. Resting on top is one of my custom favor boxes that I love to make for brides looking for something a little more original to match their decor/color schemes.

Oh yeah, these are my very favorite charger plates! I love them so much, I keep them on my table at home all the time. You never know when an unexpected guest will stop by; I believe your table should always look great for entertaining.

Don’t you think this would be the perfect setting for a proposal? All you guys thinking about about getting engaged, give me a call. I’d love to arrange a romantic setting for you and your soon to be fiance.


Check back soon for another one of our tablescapes…..see you then!
